your looking at a trany rebuild hope you have over 2000$ for that a used trany will run you up 1500$ as well.

I have the exact same problem and once i slow down and accelerate below 3000 rpm and get past 40mph its all good. I decided to change the tranny of my 2001 Jetta Gls you need to find your tranny code its a three letter code either FDF or EPG and this is important since each code is for different gear ratios. Add me skype id victor.lebron3312 if you send me your vin number i can tell you the tranny code. I can get this tranny for 350 plus 350 for labor, 700 total installed.

hi, i have the same problem have you found the answer to your problem yet?
